    August 2 in Cambridge, MA - Ubuntu Massachusetts Fourth "Exploration: Ubuntu"

    "You'd be surprised at the number of folks who see Linux as the
    operating system of choice now."
    ~ -Mel King, Director, South End Technical Center

    PRESS RELEASE—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Boston, Mass., July 17, 2008—The Ubuntu Massachusetts Local Community
    Team is a group of volunteers and activists organized around the
    open-source Ubuntu operating system, often called “Linux for human
    beings.” The team advocates digital rights and freedom, and promotes
    Ubuntu use to achieve this.

    They have been working with the South End Technical Center since January
    2008, installing Ubuntu on center and user machines and providing weekly
    training sessions for experienced and novice users alike. On August 2nd
    the group will be hosting their fourth free Exploration Ubuntu event to
    demonstrate what this easy-to-use Linux system has to offer.

    What is Ubuntu?
    For some Celtics fans, Ubuntu may just be a rallying cheer, but those in
    the know recognize it as a word from several African languages that
    roughly translates to "I am what I am because of who we all are." Ubuntu
    is about community. The Ubuntu operating system is a community-developed
    version of the Linux operating system; it exists because of, and is
    supported by, a global community.

    Exploration Ubuntu provides the “u” in the community with the
    opportunity to see what this free operating system, and the local group
    supporting it, has to offer. Come see it in action and talk with people
    to find out if it's right for you. Curious but not ready to take the
    plunge? The Ubuntu Massachusetts Local Community Team offers free Live
    CDs that will let you try the system at home without installing it and
    without removing your current operating system. Ready to switch? Bring
    your desktop or laptop machine in and they'll get you up and running.

    Ubuntu is great for older machines too. There are several versions
    available to suit most computers and users’ needs. Plus, it comes with a
    variety for free tools like Open Office (compatible with MS Office) and
    the Firefox web browser already installed.

    Explore Ubuntu
    Exploration Ubuntu will be held Saturday August 2nd, from 10am to 5pm at
    the MIT Media Lab, 20 Ames St, Cambridge, MA. Contact event coordinator
    Mike Rushton (leftyfb@ubuntu.com), or visit http://ubuntu-ma.us for more
    details.
